Stop the FCC!

Send a letter to prevent the FCC from Killing Public Access!

The new House Commerce & Telecommunications Subcommittee meets on Thursday, Feb. 15th, also to review the FCC.

This annual Q/A of the FCC by the House Subcommittee is an important moment for us to respond to the December 20th FCC Ruling on Video Franchising. That FCC ruling went far deeper than the failed Congressional legislation of last year in attacking Public, Educational, and Governmental (PEG) Access channels and facilities. It also threatens local municipalities ability to exercise control over their 'rights of way" and provides little protection against the red-lining of entire communities. Worse of all, the FCC hearing on the matter was rife with inaccuracies and half-truths that even the phone companies backed away from. Such behavior by a Federal agency is reprehensible and we demand full accountability now!
